areas around the country. they conducted a survey of the largest cities in the country. if my eyesight serves me well, they have a program called park score. and that is basically where -- this writing is way too small. but they assess the park systems in the largest systems in the country and give them a score based on the condition, proximity, size and scope of recreation and park facilities. san francisco, i am proud to say, came in number one as the best park system in the country. everybody should take credit with that. they presented the mayor and me with an etched park bench, the mayor has in his office, and will have it sitting there just to tell everybody how proud he is of us having the best parks system in the country. that leads me to another congratulatory note, prop b. everybody -- again, everybody. from the mayor to the trust republic land to the board of supervisors, all 11 members to the san francisco port alliance, volunteers and staff, a hearty congratulations. let me inform you of numbers, just to reinforce this. there were seven down ticket ballot measures on the b

and every day grateful that we live in a city that does not forget. but there's just something wrong in this notion that the day we remember our lost leaders is the most violent day of their lives, which in the case of my family was the most violent day of ours. it's almost as if we're giving the senselessness of these deaths way too much respect by centering our love and passion and memory and yearning on the day the beating hearts of these two men, hearts that were so brave, so unflinching, so immensely loving so full of life that they seemed larger than life, the day those beating hearts stopped forever. because, let's get this straight, george and harvey did not die noblely. there was no opera music. there was nothing heroic. there was nothing romantic to be found in the loss of my dad's life. it was a senseless act. and i think why that is after all these years of loving to talk at these beautifully intentioned memorials, i can no longer bear to remember george on the day of his death. so, i think i'm going to start next year and for years to come to stop remembering november 27

is to bring them to you so tonight, a keeping them honest investigation about a city that is among the nation's deadliest. chicago, illinois. this week alone, six people have been killed there, including a 15-year-old girl who was just standing in her backyard with her friends. those deaths bring the total number of murders there this year to 476. if you're wondering, that is more than coalition troops serving in afghanistan during the same period so think of that. chicago is in a very real sense a war zone. >> patients keep coming and they come and they come, like machine gunfire. you can expect this to happen every single night. >> for the past several years, "360" has been covering the growing epidemic of gun violence on chicago's south side. >> good evening. from the south side of chicago, a tough neighborhood with strong people reeling from a killing spree that cannot be ignored. there are no easy answers but the problems are too important to ignore. we're in chicago tonight, a city in crisis. kids are dying, shot, beaten, murdered in these streets. the videotape beating of derrion, an h

where the real george gets lost in the story of others, even in my own. and we gift him back to the city and to the people, to his friends and to his colleagues and to the citizens who are the fabric and texture and color of san francisco. so, all of us can stop looking at the death of george moscone and start to put him firmly in our hearts so we can see the likes of him in new community leaders, young artists, queer and colorful, innovators and students, all inside our magnificently and uniquely diverse and never-changing city. san francisco will never be what it was, nothing in life will be. but as i heard recently, we are always nostalgic for a time that never was and often wanting to avoid a future that is inevitable. will change in san francisco as in everywhere is inevitable. and change can be beautiful. we are all of us the agents of change. as george and harvey were. each one of us is the story teller of our lives and the lives of the people we've lost. and that wasn't always the case, as willie mentioned. but because of the likes of george and harvey and so many others, all the
